Rainer what i want to understand is why use an external build tool when
there is an equivalent to make built directly into visual studio. think its
time for me to fire up the win 8 box and run nmake from command line and
see if that does anything or if it works.

Hi Joel,

unfortunately I have no knowledge at all. The only reason for my MinGW
activity was that for a long time MinGW tinderbox build much more reliably
that the others so that it often was my only source for Master builds. But
unfortunately the results always only were usable for some tests, but never
for real use. And currently MingW builds are broken. So thinking about
alternatives is appreciated.

But of course, there might be some strategig thoughts I don't know?

As far as I know Eilidh McAdam had some activity with MinGW, and also
Michael Meeks, but that knowledge is very old (March 2012). May be you
should ask them or at an ESC call concerning the current strategy.

Best regards


Jonathan Aquilina
